From Lubbock Police:

LUBBOCK, TX - The South Plains Coalition for Child Abuse Prevention, Lubbock Area United Way, and the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce recognize Detective Kyle Purdue with the 2020 Cherish the Children Award on Tuesday, July 14th at 1:00 PM at the Citizens Tower located at 1208 14th Street. The award is presented as part of the Go Blue Lubbock campaign.

The Cherish the Children Award is given annually to an entity or individuals from the community recognized as an advocate for child safety and child abuse prevention. In his role with the Lubbock Police Department, Detective Purdue witnessed the effects of child abuse and neglect firsthand. He observed a need for greater child safety and made it his own personal mission to try and create change around this critical issue.

In addition to the award presentation, Mayor Dan Pope, Senator Charles Perry, and Representative John Frullo will present on child abuse prevention efforts in the Lubbock area and how our community as a whole can work toward ensuring the safety of all children on the South Plains.

The award was originally scheduled to be presented in April as part of Child Abuse Prevention Month and the Go Blue Lubbock Campaign. Social distancing and CDC guidelines will be observed.
